Ok...so I squealed again when I saw a SECOND card on the picture of the Convention Display Boards!! I really love this simple, yet lovely card and am so happy that it received some recognition. It is a great thrill for us stampers to have the work that we are proud of out there for so many to see.

Imagine my surprise when I saw this card on a picture of a Convention Display Board. Well, I squealed and jumped up out of my chair!! I think this little guy is so cute and I worked hard paper piecing him, so it is quite an honor to have him end up on one of the boards for all of the convention goers to see.

Here is a card that I love to look at!! I used the Inspired by Nature set that has become one of my all-time favorite Stampin' Up! sets EVER!! When I first saw this set, I thought it was nice, but not something that I would need. Then...I saw what people were doing with it and just how yummy it was, so I bought it and I'm soooooo very glad I did. It is just the most beautiful and easy to use set EVER!!! Then there is that awesome scalloped oval punch...how great is that? (this one is straight too...ugh I need a camera!)

Here is a very easy "man" card. Many have trouble coming up with cards for men...not me, I love making them and find it quick and easy work. Perhaps that is because I'm in a household full of boys!! I really like the stamp set Happiness is a Journey. My husband and children love trains, so this set was a must have for me. Oh, and, the card is straight...it is the scanning that makes is a wonky :0(

I'm so in love with the stamp set Upsy Daisy!! It is so easy to make a beautiful card without much effort. This sketch came from the weekly sketch challenge at a wonderful site called Stampin' Addicts. The colors are Always Artichoke, Mellow Moss and Naturals White with Artichoke ribbon. The Stamp-a-ma-jig was necessary to get my flowers lined up just right (love, love, love that tool!!). Just so you know...the card is straight, just not the scanning ;0)

Here's a simple little card to get me back into the game. The stamp set is Pocket Silhouettes and the colors are Perfect and Pale Plum with Very Vanilla. I've had this ribbon for years, so I'm not sure where it came from, but it is an exact match for Perfet Plum. I used the Scallop Square punch, which I LOVE!! The layout is from the Stampin' Addicts sketch challenge.
